Deep-seabed min­ing last­ingly dis­rupts the sea­floor food web

Pers / media: OnderzoekAcademic

Description

Deep-seabed mining is considered a way to address the increasing need of rare metals. However, the environmental impacts are considered to be substantial but remain largely unknown and clear regulatory standards are lacking. Researchers at the Max Planck Institute for Marine Microbiology in Bremen, Germany, together with colleagues from The Netherlands, Belgium, Portugal, Germany and the UK, now describe that mining-related disturbances have a long-term impact on carbon flow and the microbial loop at the deep seafloor. They present their results in the journal Pro­gress in Ocean­o­graphy.

    BeschrijvingTiefseebergbau könnte eine Möglichkeit bieten, dem zunehmenden Bedarf an seltenen Metallen zu begegnen. Seine Umweltauswirkungen sind vermutlich erheblich, dennoch sind sie nur wenig erforscht und es fehlt an klaren regulierenden Standards. Forschende des Max-Planck-Instituts für Marine Mikrobiologie in Bremen beschreiben nun gemeinsam mit Kolleginnen und Kollegen aus den Niederlanden, Belgien, Portugal, Deutschland und Großbritannien, dass Störungen durch Tiefseebergbau langfristige Auswirkungen auf den Kohlenstofffluss und den mikrobiellen Kreislauf in Tiefseeböden haben. Ihre Ergebnisse präsentieren sie in der Zeitschrift Progress in Oceanography.
